Jen finally finished her book so the link-up is back at her blog! Yay! Welcome back to the Blogging World!
Happy LENT! How has your Lent been so far? Have you checked out my awesome Lenten Meal Plan Link-Up? Every Monday during Lent I will be posting some yummy recipes! So far there has been some great ideas and yummy recipes I must try! Also check out my Lenten Practices post and my Lent Video Series. Man I have been busy this week!
Speaking of being Blog Busy how do you like my DEAL DAY WEDNESDAYS? So far I feel like it’s been going well. I want to try to post more amazon and daily site deals on Wednesday’s as well. It’s definitely a learning process.
I really enjoyed reading all the #Ashtag and #CatholicProblems tweets on Ash Wednesday. It was nice to spread the good news of starting of Lent and drown in our sorrows of abstaining and fasting. Every LENT I always feel like I’m complaining and “alone” in being hungry or having headaches but it was nice to know that a lot of the people on twitter were going through the same things that I was. (If you missed out on it you can click those links to see what people have said)
Along with all the tweets about LENT I saw several tweets and blog posts about Ash Wednesday being “Catholic Single’s Awareness Day” I had NEVER heard this before. Has anyone else? Can someone enlighten me on this?
I just found out today that we are moving by March 31st instead of May 31st. So we have to find a place to live, pack, and move all within 35 days. Hopefully this blog doesn’t suffer too much. I think next week I am going to write a TON of posts like a mad women including all those Guest Posts I have to write. (Did I mention I HATE HATE HATE MOVING?)

#5: As scary as it sounds, it is completely doable. I speak from personal experience. 🙂 (We usually get about 4 weeks notice when we move between parishes if we’re lucky.) And I’m with you — I’d rather have major abdominal surgery daily than deal with packing and moving.

ugh yes I wish we were rich and I could just hire someone to move for me lol yeah I’m sure we have moved in the same amount of time it’s just daunting!
Nice to see a fellow Floridian! And I’m with you on the hating moving thing as well. We’ve done it every year since we’ve been married, and it’s getting old!!!!

I haven’t been on Twitter lately, but I would love to go back and look at what people were saying! It does make me feel better when I realize I am not alone in my “suffering” during Lent.
Good luck with all that comes with moving!
And that Disney bag looks awesome! Can’t wait for details on it!

I don’t think it comes with anything in it. That is just the sample that the sponsor game me to use. I could be wrong though. The winner will get to choose what gets written on the bag 🙂

4- Catholic Singles Awareness Day means if they’re wearing ashes and don’t have a ring they’re fair game. 🙂
7- That’s awesome! What a cute bag!

I don’ think I have every met anyone who actually enjoyed moving. Your simply don’t realize how much “stuff” you have accumulated until it’s time to back it up. 35 day is NOT a lot of time either. I hope you have a game plan.
I haven’t given up anything for lent…..I’m a bad boy.
